September Favourites

Favourites.

All the monthly favourites, so I've mixed August and September together for this post as I took a little break at the end of August. 

Beauty. 
There's a fair few beauty products this month, plenty I've boasted about for months on my blog and a few new bits and pieces. The first being makeup revolutions FLAWLESS palette. I'm obsessed with the colours available in this palette, I can create anything from a simple neutral look to an experimental smokey eye. A forgotten favourite made its way back into my life during August and is still having that love it deserves is the RUSSIAN RED from mac. This is beyond perfect for those days when my energy levels are low but I still want to look like I've made the effect, so a simple cat eye and a bold red lip works perfectly. Now benefits GIMME BROW & max factors FALSE LASH MASCARA have officially become staple items in my makeup routine, I love the effect both of these give to my brows and lashes and I can't see myself using anything else any time soon. My final two beauty products are lush products, both were first time buys at the beginning of August and I've been in love since. I've been using ULTRABLAND to clear my skin a few times a week, it leaves my skin feeling so soft and refreshed, the COMFORTER has finally been turned into a shower gel, which is a wonder for us folk who don't have the pleasure to use the sweet scent of the bubble bar. 

TV, Films & Books. 
While I was away in August I took my all time favourite book away with me and during all our busy plans I still managed to complete my book. WHERE RAINBOWS END is my ultimate book, and last year they turned it into a film LOVE ROSIE, so clearly it took me a few days to read the book and as soon as I was home it was a must to watch the film and I'm in love with both as much as the other. I've been re watching some of my childhood favourite films this months, a whole lot of Disney in preparation to my Disney trip in November. And on the other end of the spectrum I took my dad and my boyfriend to watch Legend last week and we all found this film amazing!! But bringing back the Disney talk, I massively missed out when I was younger..,I never watched BOY MEETS WORLD, terrible I know. Well, I started watching GIRL MEETS WORLD on Netflix only last week, I've already caught up on those episodes and onto season 3 of BOY MEETS WORLD. Oh how I love Mr Feenys life lessons and how Cory Matthews grew up to teach his daughter the same lessons, so perfect. 

everything else. 
Being as this is a two month favourites, it's a little difficult to remember everything I've been up to. During August I went on my first holiday in a few years, myself, my boyfriend and a few family member shared a week in a lovely 3-floored home. We ate food at Rick Stein's resturants, Sky-Wired across Eden Project & watched Bastille at Boardmasters festival, so much happened which I can now tick off my bucket list. I had such an amazing time away & I posted a few photos, here. Me and Tom also booked our first holiday together and we're off to Disneyland Paris in November, eeeek. I worked plenty of hours and slept a lot in-between it all. We celebrated my Dad's birthday and I treated the family to cinema tickets and snacks (with a little help from the perks of the job). A eat a little bit too much food and I've constantly watched Disney films. You can keep up to date with everything I do on my instagram, here.  

And you have it, my very busy two months, I mean even this post was published later than I'd liked. I have one more shift before a much need TWO days off. I've been working non-stop for almost two weeks now and my body can't handle it anymore, so I feel sorry for everyone who gets in my way. I hope you're all well & I'd love to hear your recent favourites too?

  9. Russian Red is my favourite MAC lipstick. I have tried it and Ruby Woo and it's just so much easier to apply (and suits me better too!) I loved Love, Rosie as a film and I'm reading the book at the moment. It's a little different to the film but I like it a lot so far!
